Move Over, Swinging Ball Thingies!: Ferrofluid Interactive Magnetic Desk Sculptures

December 20, 2011


This is a nearly funded Kickstarter for Ferrite Interactive Liquid Sculptures. They're basically TMNT ooze canisters with a magnetic liquid (ferrofluid) suspended in another, clear liquid that you can manipulate to make cool shapes with external magnets. Contributing $100 gets you a mini one when (if) they're manufactured next July, $150 a large one, and $200 scores one of each. You'll have to watch the demonstration video after the jump though to fully appreciate them, just talking about them doesn't really do them justice. But do you know who does do justice? My crime fighting alter-ego, Captain Handsome. Dashing, isn't he? "That's just you ducking behind a movie-theater cutout of that kid from Twilight." It's true. I used to have a Batman one but my roommate fought it and won.

Hit the jump for the worthwhile video demo and a link to the Kickstarter page.

Thanks to David, the man behind the project, who assured me none of the ferrofluid was milked from Magneto's tits like I'd suspected.
